About Me

Hey everyone! My name is Katherine. I served in Thailand with the United States Peace Corps from January 2014 until March 2016 and that’s why I originally started this blog, but I thought I’d revive it. Because why blog only about life overseas, why not blog about life here in the United States? We’ll see how much I write.

I have my Masters of Science in Social Work from Columbia University. I moved from a town of 400 people to a city of 8 million or more. Talk about culture shock and life lessons! I’ve always been one for leaving home and finding adventure to further grow as a person and so far I haven’t been disappointed. I love experiencing new cultures and helping others, I love dancing and doing yoga. Once or twice I have been called a boo-boo kisser, I don’t mind.

I have the travel bug and for those of you who know a thing or two about the bug, once you’ve got it, it’s hard to resist. So here I am, going on my next big adventure, following my dreams, follow my blog to see what’s going on!


 In my blog you’ll find a few different types of entries. Including

Little Things: Often times we forget to appreciate the little things in life. You’ll find maybe a short story or a photo of a little thing that I felt to be meaningful on my journey.

“Appreciate the little things, small joys and victories are gifts to continually lift you and recharge your spirit.” -Gary Rudz

Reflections: Anything with the title Reflection, will be just that, a reflection on how many moments throughout my service cause me to pause and reflect on the experience and how it is shaping my perspectives, my faith, and me.

“It is necessary … for a man to go away by himself … to sit on a rock … and ask, ‘Who am I, where have I been, and where am I going?” – Carl Sandburg

    This whole project sounds wonderful! You are doing so much and your youth will have so many benefits. This is what the Peace Corps was created for. Also it is an application of your academics as s well as being God’s work.

  2. Hi Katherine,
    Your blog is fascinating, with amazing pictures. I work with USM’s Alumni Office and we would love to do a story about your Peace Corps experience in our newsletter. I left a message for you on facebook, maybe we can connect that way? Thanks so much.
